COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — The Ohio Supreme Court announced Tuesday it will be holding the April 7 and April 8 oral arguments remotely due to COVID-19.
The arguments will be conducted using videoconferencing.
While the traditional courtroom will not be used for these sessions, the supreme court's seven justices will actively participate from their chambers at the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center.
“We are dedicated to continue the Court’s business with minimal disruption,” Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor said. “We are using the latest technology that makes remote oral arguments possible. It is important for the Supreme Court to do what every court in Ohio is asked to do, conduct business within the Director Of Health’s directives and do so consistent with their essential functions.”
